We went to swim with the dolphins and the sea lions, but didn't realize this was a water park as well. They even have a zip line! We never saw that part advertised. They even have kind of an obstacle thing and a rock climbing wall. There were no lines to wait in or anything! The dolphin swim was about... More

We went on a Thursday in March. The place was very quiet so we got some extra time with the dolphins. Pictures are pricey.

The educational/recreational aspects were great, but they wanted more 4 pictures than we paid 4 admission.

The royal swim was the most expensive of the 3 swims with the dolphins but worth the cost difference because we had 45-60 minutes of close and incredible contact with these loving, intelligent creatures. This is an experience I recommend to everyone who loves animals. You will never forget it.

We booked the Dolphin Encounter with eleven of us. We had a lot of fun being in the water with the dolphins. The instructors were really good with the kids and the adults who didn't listen to everything they told us to do. They gave a lot of good information about the dolphins. After the encounter, we were able to... More
